Subject: Mellow turns out to be right
Sound is a little bass heavy.

Overture > Sabre Dance - The band (particularly Barber) spends a while trying to get out of the hold of the Overture and get into the jam, but when they finally do, Barber has some really gorgeous licks here and there, and though short, the jam turns out really enjoyable.

Floes - The Floes jam is very tom heavy and features Barber on lead melody and Magner on xylophone patch. Really great airy Floes jam. Love it. Magner is way too quiet on the lead riff for the peak.

Lai - The Lai jam is solid but similar to dozens and dozens of other Lais. Nothing memorable here.

House Dog > Overture - The 1st House Dog jam starts out a little slow, but turns into some really cool mellow jamming, and winds up leading into the peak really well. The 2nd jam begins with some fantastic dark jamming, with Magner taking the reigns for a bit, and comes up with a really cool lead. The jam out of House Dog ending is a cool idea, but comes off pretty forced.

Four stars for an all around good show and decent sound. None of the jams here are really outrageous in the sense you'll be listening to them over and over again, but if you're looking for a laid back show to listen to, this wouldn't be a bad choice. Solid all-around playing by the whole band, but they never seem to leave the galaxy, rather getting stuck in the troposphere.

I'm not an expert, but I have seen a couple shows and heard a few more... so I will just say I like this show, it is very mellow...and obviously very short...

This was my first Disco Biscuits show. I went down to Waterloo simply to see the Biscuits, I couldn't have cared less that SCI was playing later that night (and actually ended up leaving cause it was raining).

Anyway, this show is not an amazing show by any standards, but the thing I was most impressed with right away was Sammy's style. His technique is flawless and so technical I was blown away by it. As far as the setlist and the feel of the show, this was not a tranced-out dance party by a long shot. This is a show to showcase the ability of DB to put on a show with simple good musicianship, great improvisation and mellow, flowing lines throughout the show. A Sabre Dance right out of the opening Overture (which is an amazing version, by the way) was a good pick-me-up, followed by an excellent version of Floes and an equally solid Little Lai. The House Dog is chill and slower than other times I've heard it, but still solid, and flows nicely back into The Overture, completing the huge Overture sandwich that was this set.

Overall, I'd give this show a 3/5, but Sammy was just so on that day and really kept the guys up to their standards of 4 and 5 star shows. We'll miss you Sammy, good thing we have shows like this and so many others to remember where the Biscuits sound came from.
